Does powertrain warranty cover it ?


Problem: Compressor does not turn on after pressing the AC button. No tick sound and no cooling.

The AC fan makes a little hissing sound during operation.

Any suggestions ?

Yep, get it checked out.

It's more than likely got a hole in the system somewhere (condensor failure is VERY common on these cars ac systems), the car is way too new to just need a "refill"

Less likely is an electrical issue of sorts. If your car is out of warranty you can turn your ac on and with the car running junper the low pressure switch connector terminals. This should cause the compressor to click on (but don't leave it running longer than it takes to figure out if it's working) if that's the case then you are low or out of refrigerant. If it dosen't turn on it's an electrical issue.
